Originally, I bought this rug in an 8' x 8' for a dining area. I liked it so well that I also ordered the 8' x 11' area rug to brighten up the great room. I put a pad under it to prevent slipping and would suggest doing that for wood floors. The only problem that I have is getting the wrinkles out of the rug. It came rolled up and when I unrolled it, it had a couple of big kinks across the rug. It has been a few months since I put it down. The kinks are much flatter now so perhaps in time they will disappear altogether.
This pad was purchased to go under a 8' x 11' area rug on wood floors. It does the job that it is supposed to do which is preventing slipping and protecting the wood floors. The pad can be cut to fit, if needed, although I did not need to do that.
